7th Trip Around the Sun
Smoking hot from September '72. Some are partial to the first Waterbury show on 9/23 or to the preceding show at The Philly Spectrum on 9/21 (Dick's 36). Others more partial to a couple nights before on 9/17 (Dick's 23) from Baltimore, or a few nights later from Jersey City, 9/27 (Dick's 11). At any rate, you get the picture.
Unquestionable highlight of the show is near its end, the 45+ minutes of Dark Star->Jam->China Cat->Rider. Four stars mainly on account of some audio and editing issues, as many have noted in this stream's reviews (and others). Still, I think this one is the best we get in the archive. This show's debut version of Tomorrow is Forever is featured on the 30 trips definitive live story.

Another GREAT September 72 show. I have (high) hopes that one day these 2 Palace shows will be released as a Road Trip. The Dead were true beasts of the east in 1972. These September/October 72 Dark Stars are long, hypnotic & trippy. A musical palate for the ear. This Dark Star is my second all time favorite. In fact my top 6 favorite Dark Stars are from Sept '72 to December '72. Isn't cool to be a Deadhead.

This was my first Dead show. I found this recording a few years ago and was not surprised why I became such a DeadHead. I remember sitting in the balcony thinking it might not stand the bouncing. I saw Zappa there and Old And In The Way just before the Dead and the Allmans played at RFK. Jerry was wearin pigtails that night and sported them again in Washington. That Washington show was my second Dead show and it was a cultural event. After that it was Watkins Glen and a countless string of shows.

Nice show in a nice era.; sound=4; show=4; sound edits=1.... I saw some shows at the Palace (not the Dead though)....It was a nice small place for a show, but one heck of a fire trap...like the Orpheum in Boston. I think I also show Bob Weir band there in like '79 or '80 too. This is a rather odd recording...the songs are jumbled, and some are partially missing.
